Judgment Against Haskell.
lulsa, Okia.—After deliberating all
night, a jury in the United States
court awarded the Columbus, Ohio,
Savings and Trust company a judg-
ment for $1,999.57 in a suit for $!),-
400 involving stock in the Indianola
Contracting company of Muskogee,
against former Governor Haskell.
Seven years ago Mr. Haskell nego-
tiated a loan for $19,000 from this
bank and gave as security stock in the
Indianola Contracting company, along j
with other securities. Haskell charg-
ed the bank with dissipating certain
of the securities and the court's ver-
dict is construed in the light of a vic-
tory for him. Haskell appeared as his

A tax ferret case which was decided
against the "ferrets," was appealed to
the supreme court from the county

reported the Weatherford Milling com-

factured stocks for the years 1903 to

to $120,000 a year and totaling $380,-

amount, making them run from $2,725
to $7,000 a year, and placed them on
the tax rolls at these figures. The
company appealed to the county court,
